� 2 On May 17, 2000, N.E.’s mother signed a voluntary placement agreement which resulted in the Trial Court temporarily committing N.E. to DHS and placing the child at Sleighton School as a dependent. DHS was directed to file a dependency petition, and it complied. On July 12, 2000, N.E. was adjudicated dependent and committed to DHS. N.E. remained at Sleighton School until December 15, 2000, at which time she returned to her mother’s residence. In the time between N.E.’s return home on December 15, 2000 and a permanency hearing scheduled for January 4, 2001, N.E. fell and injured her teeth, and now requires “extensive dental treatment.” Trial Court Opinion, filed 4/24/01, at 1. At the permanency hearing on January 4, 2001, the Trial Court ordered that N.E. be returned to her mother, terminated N.E.’s commitment retroactive to December 15, 2000, ordered DHS supervision of N.E. at home, and ordered DHS to pay “any specified amount that is not covered by [mother's] insurance as to [N.E.'s] dental needs due to [her] fall.” Trial Court Order, dated 1/4/01. On February 2, 2001, DHS filed a notice of appeal. The Trial Court ordered DHS to file a statement of matters complained of on appeal pursuant to Pa.R.A.P. 1925(b), and DHS complied on February 29, 2001.
